July 12 is shaping up to be a real doozy for deal lovers. Not only will Amazon Prime Day be on the twelfth day of July, but so will Cow Appreciation Day.
Not familiar with Cow Appreciation Day? It’s fast-food restaurant Chick-fil-A’s annual celebration of all things bovine — and it gives you the chance to score a free entrée.

How to get your free food
This year, Chick-fil-A is making it easier to get your free entrée. All you have to do is wear anything ‘cow-like’ to redeem this offer at any participating restaurant from open until 7 p.m. on July 12.
In years past, Chick-fil-A offered a complete meal to any customer ‘fully dressed as a cow’ on Cow Appreciation Day. Now they’re lowering the bar so even those who choose ‘partial cow attire’ — meaning you have some type of cow accessory, like a hat, vest or purse — can get a free entrée.
So the bad news is there’s no option to go whole hog (cow?) and get a complete meal this year. But the good news is you can at least get something for very little effort!
If you still insist on sporting a cow costume, the restaurant suggests the following:
- Start with items that you already have at home – cow-printed accessories in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes, pajamas – just about any cow-spotted item will work.
- Wear white, and then just add spots. Throw on a white T-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your spots using black paper. You can cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. If nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black spots all over it with a marker.
- Not feeling too creative and want an easy costume? Search the Internet for ‘cow costumes’ and you will be flooded with ideas. (And hey, you’ll be set for Halloween, too!)
